The Pearl Brewery is near downtown and anchors the north end of the Riverwalk known as the Museum Reach.
The market is set up in the parking lot and is always well attended.
San Antonio Water System was a sponsor and employees were on hand to answer questions about water conservation. Other groups included the Bexar County Master Gardeners, The Gardening Volunteers of South Texas and the San Antonio Herb Society.
There were plenty of vendors and a large selection of herbs and related plants. These containers are ready to go at the Nature's Herb Farm booth.
Long lines for the checkout at Nature's Herb Farm, a good thing to see
This booth is showing succulents
Colorful succulent wreaths
This large succulent hanging basket display from Burns Nursery
The container display also at Burns was charming
The Antique Rose Emporium had a booth with roses for sale
This year's featured speaker was Susan Belsinger who gave an excellent presentation on using herbs in cooking. After Susan's seminar I headed over to the adjacent parking lot for the Farmer's Market held each Saturday at the Pearl Brewery.
"Please play on the grass," no lawn here so...
here's the grass you're invited to play on
Pearl has created a park in the parking lot and a favorite place for gardening inspiration. Ornamental grasses along with drought tolerant perennials are planted in islands within the parking lot and the perimeter.
A look at some of the rows of booths here and a group of Pumpkins on display.
A very nice day to sit and enjoy the band
And a great grouping of ornamental grasses behind the band. This is one awesome parking lot. I'll be back on a quieter day for more photos of the Pearl parking lot park and the plantings along this section of the Riverwalk.
